Maybe this entire second season was an april joke and we're getting real episodes starting next week.

I just want it to end already. This season showed signs of improvement but somehow its ended up feeling even more aimless than the 1st.

what about Mikas child?

Robert Perez

Timeskip with Atra's baby as MC

Lincoln Morgan

Or Gali Gali

Jonathan Torres
Jonathan Torres

I LOVED it until they suddently decided to abandon their initial plan, forsake McGillis and simply try to disappear. I mean, on the one hand it's completely reasonable (to some extent) to choose this path in order to save the remainants of Tekkadan, but on the other hand I just wanted Mikazuki to go berserk and ending this show with a bang

Daniel Turner
Daniel Turner

Lieutenant Octo Anaalé when?

Connor Rodriguez
Connor Rodriguez

But everyone is dead

Austin Stewart
Austin Stewart

Either a downer ending that will piss off lots of fans or season 3 that feels unnecessary

Both are weird outcome

Mason Murphy
Mason Murphy

Atra has a ham in the oven, user.
The child of a gundam, the true ironblooded orphan.

Dylan Bennett
Dylan Bennett

I had a generally good opinion of Season 2 and have been defending it up UNTIL the end of the Mobile Armour arc. Everything after that just went back to feeling lackluster.

Isaac Collins
Isaac Collins

I'm hoping for a timeskip with Mika and Barbatos fused, and atra and Mika baby as pilot mc. Maybe Mc dosnt know that pops is in the gundam only that said gundam belonged to dad. Think this would make the whole problem of turning vegi go away. Kinda like gali and ein.

Logan Reed
Logan Reed

The whole "let's get em dad!" Thing could get kinda cringe which is why I think not knowing that your father is confined in the gundam you pilot would be better

Chase Rodriguez

The extermination of the space rats will be glorious.

Alexander Wilson

Henry Fisher

I never would have thought during s1 that id actually be rooting for gjallahorn by the end

Elijah Green
Elijah Green

Someone genuinely wants another season of this pointless shit? Sunrise is making another UC series right after this, give it up.

Jack Adams
Jack Adams

Why would you root for generic corrupt military organization?
There's fucking no one to root for in this show.
The only proper ending is Mars transforming into giant Mobile Armor and murdering every named character.

Brandon Brooks
Brandon Brooks

No but I am ready for based Choco Char to not only have survived, but to also be the leader of Neo-Gjallarhorn.

John Garcia
John Garcia

What's that dad? You want me to murder the shit out of some space pirates because you're bored?

Gabriel Gomez
Gabriel Gomez

There's fucking no one to root for in this show.

Kayden Nguyen
Kayden Nguyen

The show has been shit since season 1 so what does it matter either way?

Jonathan Cruz
Jonathan Cruz

I'd rather have the spin off manga animated.

Angel Fisher
Angel Fisher

Will not happen, quit spreading fake news and head back to Anime Suki

Parker Green
Parker Green

Everything after that just went back to feeling lackluster.
I lot of the episodes after McGillis acquired Bael have seemed like the writers are killing time until they can figure out how to wrap up the series. I think a lot of the events that happened in recent episodes (e.g. McGillis' death) weren't originally planned in the way they played out.

Ethan Hughes
Ethan Hughes

I feel like the opposite is true. McGillis' cool fight was the only decent looking mecha battle in the entire series. If it were a rush-job I feel like it would've looked just as awful as the rest of the series.

Austin Smith
Austin Smith

Well there is the possibility that the fight had been planned for a long time in advance but the context of the events surrounding it were either changed or unconfirmed. It just seems like the plot has been meandering around for the last few weeks with no clear goal in sight.

Alexander Edwards
Alexander Edwards

Barbatos looks so cool in action when they bother to properly animated the battle scenes. Imagine what he'd look like with Thunderbolt-tier animation.

Joshua Cook
Joshua Cook

Choco died, there's nothing else to see there

Brandon Collins
Brandon Collins

Normally I'd be satisfied with a well executed downer ending (it's been a long time since we had one of those in a Gundam series), but I don't even think we'll get that given the track record of IBO. S1 managed a decent if lacklustre finale, but S1 had the benefit of improving towards the last few episodes. S2 has just been getting worse.

Asher Cook
Asher Cook

That animation sequence here looks fucking awful.

Charles Sanders
Charles Sanders

You can see a pure human pilot with a bright future mop the floor with vile bloodlusting animals.

Blake Cook
Blake Cook

Awful is relative. It's a damn sight better than what we usually get from IBO.

Kayden Rogers
Kayden Rogers

S1 managed a decent if lacklustre finale, but S1 had the benefit of improving towards the last few episodes.

Elijah Clark
Elijah Clark

Either a downer ending that will piss off lots of fans or season 3 that feels unnecessary
Even if they made the 3rd season the best damn Gundam series ever, people will still not watch it.

Nolan Anderson
Nolan Anderson

choppy
lacks fluidity
doesn't feel like an organic sequence at all
even can make out key frames
Its better then what you normally get in IBO but its still pretty bad.

S1 managed a decent if lackluster finale
user...

Lucas Carter
Lucas Carter

Char died, there's nothing else to see there

Logan Wilson
Logan Wilson

The last few episodes of IBO S1 were definitely better than anything else we got in the rest of the season.

Its better then what you normally get in IBO but its still pretty bad.
Of course - that's why I said that it's all relative. Barbatos looks good in action because he's a somewhat unique Gundam and I'd love to seem him in action with objectively good animation.

Why do you think that?

Jeremiah White
Jeremiah White

The last few episodes of IBO S1 were definitely better than anything else we got in the rest of the season.
Nah.

Ayden Garcia
Ayden Garcia

Please god no, let it end.

Camden Fisher
Camden Fisher

The last characters I cared about died last week so no thanks.

Kayden Diaz
Kayden Diaz

Well what do you consider the "highlight" episodes of S1 then?

Eli Barnes
Eli Barnes

Sunrise didn't even bother to do an April Fool joke for this unlike Classicaloid and Heybot.

Brandon Davis
Brandon Davis

How bad it was to the point I dropped it after the Space Debris/Dorts act for awhile and rewatched AGE just to wash the bad taste from my mouth just to come back to it to see how much of a trainwreck it was.

The best part was the first three episode legitimately.

Luke Rogers
Luke Rogers

She just accidentally opened her tomato soup can no problem.

Sebastian James
Sebastian James

I see what you did there

Tyler Russell
Tyler Russell

Is this the first gundam series where the protags are humiliated, blamed as the villains, and then all killed?

Jaxon Jackson
Jaxon Jackson

That was 00 S1.

Charles Perry
Charles Perry

Also Lafter's constantly fluctuating breast size sure was FUN.

First two already happened to Shinn.

Leo Miller

There is no child. Nobody gets what they want in this story. Kudelia is talking to vegetable Mika in the preview.

Adam Martin

T-they're totally gonna survive this, right guys?

Jack Hill

WILL ATRA DIE? Please no

Thomas Howard
Thomas Howard

Never watched Gundam cause zero fucks,wondering if is something like

Same plot ad infinitum
Characters switching sides for the spite of it
Armor plot
Flashbacks
People going full Col. Kurtz and doing nothing but talk
Other random BS

Hudson Roberts
Hudson Roberts

The only people who genuinely expect more are the ones posting retarded fanfictions.

Dylan Gomez

Who's ready for Twilight Axis

Samuel Williams

Never watched Gundam
starts with IBO
Poor you

Nicholas Collins

Looks like a fat lot of crap but IBO already brought things to such a low level anything will do.

Brandon Sullivan
Brandon Sullivan

I never watched them,have no intention to watch IBO,too lazy to open a new thread so I'm just asking here.

Cooper Moore
Cooper Moore

This show is 2015's April's Fool joke.

Oliver Hernandez
Oliver Hernandez

Just let it die already, stop wasting seasons on salvaging the unsalvagable. Hopefully whatever they do next will be better (though looking at their track record for all post-00 seasonal gundams its not a good bet).

David Gomez
David Gomez

Build fighters was good.

Gabriel Stewart
Gabriel Stewart

00 is a good place to start.

Mason Phillips
Mason Phillips

dude...

Nolan Scott
Nolan Scott

Wasn't that just a season-long advertisement for gunpla? (moreso than usual)

Nathan Howard
Nathan Howard

Everyone praise 00 and I barely remember anything from it.
Was it really that good?
Maybe I should rewatch it.

Xavier Phillips
Xavier Phillips

00
May as well go with IBO if they don't care about mecha action.

Jaxon Jenkins
Jaxon Jenkins

Char's Counterattack.

Tyler Evans
Tyler Evans

Season 1 was great bro watch it now if you love gundam.
It is like gundam valhalla.

Parker Rivera
Parker Rivera

It has some good moments in the first season.

Angel Morales
Angel Morales

Same plot ad infinitum
The only common theme between each Gundam is war and space.

Characters switching sides for the spite of it
It does happen.

Armor plot
Of course. Though it's usually just one or two characters, usually comic reliefs. Otherwise it's more of an everybody can die series. Especially IBO.

Flashbacks
Once in a while sure. But the series never stops altogether for the sake of a 12 episodes long flashback for instance.

People going full Col. Kurtz and doing nothing but talk
Not really, though when it comes to IBO that's a rather frequent criticism.

Henry James
Henry James

There's 0080 but 0080 is actually good.

Landon Kelly
Landon Kelly

Here's the (You) for that low quality bait.

Alexander Butler
Alexander Butler

I remember everything being pretty solid in 00 with my only complaint being that Celestial Being somehow kept their massive technological advantage secret for 100 years

Cooper Parker
Cooper Parker

Why was Hush shafted so hard? We never saw any real improvements in his skills and he was Mika's servant for more than half the season until his stupid death. Why did they even bother with him?

Adrian White
Adrian White

It will be a movie, and I hope the retarded shitposters sudoku themselves.

James King
James King

he reminded me of the manga protagonist, too bad everyone got okada'd

Ryder Collins
Ryder Collins

Why was [Any IBO character] shafted so hard? We never saw any real improvements in his/her skills and s/he was Mika's servant for more than half the season until his/her stupid death. Why did they even bother with him/her?

Cameron Martinez
Cameron Martinez

Why did they even bother with him?
Feeds into my theory that there was a major change in direction during the second half of season 2 and Hush's character development was one of the things that got left behind.

Isaiah Clark
Isaiah Clark

Better than starting with Age or Greco.

Andrew Torres
Andrew Torres

We never saw any real improvements in his skills
He went from being useless to being able to take out grunts!

Tyler Sullivan
Tyler Sullivan

Now that Macky is dead I really stopped caring for the show. His ballad shall go down in my personal gundam history as one of the best.

Fucking Gaelio.

Brayden Davis
Brayden Davis

If anything, if it gets anything more I will already have won.

Parker Gomez
Parker Gomez

Yo, haven't been on Sup Forums in a while but I'm looking for something new to watch.

I have a huge nostalgia boner for Gundam Wing. I watched SEED and thought it was very forgettable(though the OST still holds up). The last one I watched was 00 and I considered it... meh? Had it's moments, cool designs, but most characters were bland.

Do you think this show would be good for me?

Jason Robinson
Jason Robinson

mika has a daughter
she is a lesbian
it's the first sjw gundam
directed by Mari Okada

Oliver Gray
Oliver Gray

His ballad shall go down in my personal gundam history as one of the best.
Why do people keep saying this? It was just a fairly standard Char clone arc, except he was a rent boy as a child.

Ayden Williams
Ayden Williams

The madman had to be put down for his own good.

Hunter Ramirez
Hunter Ramirez

He truly was too good for this world.

Sebastian Nelson
Sebastian Nelson

Maybe Okada believes it's a brilliant trope subversion that truly makes you think.

Jordan Williams
Jordan Williams

Looks to me like you only liked Wing because you watched it as a kid and don't really like Gundam. Don't waste your time with this franchise.

Noah Ward
Noah Ward

its mika still a cripple

Luis Perez
Luis Perez

He was fun and his death scene was beautiful.

William Martin
William Martin

Him dying feeds into my theory that he was the typical rookie character who looks up to the MC, but then dies in battle
That's a super common character type in mecha anime though it would've been nice if he had at least been killed by a named character

Juan Miller
Juan Miller

Fuck you he will rise again, for he was chosen by Bael the very sould of Gjallarhorn and Agnika Kaieru,

Isaiah Stewart
Isaiah Stewart

Nah, I do like mechs, and I do like Gundam in general, I just thought the most recent ones were pretty forgettable.

I still had fun watching them at the time, just when looking back on them I don't think they were good, just entertaining enough, and I guess that's what I want.

The main thing really are the characters, if those are good I really don't care much for the mech designs or the pacing and so on.

Is this show just a trainload of standard gundam character tropes or does it have some more refreshing ones?

Alexander Martin
Alexander Martin

Hello newfriend if you want to see an actual SJW anime you should check out Earth Maiden Arjuna
It features everything you crossboard normalfags love to cry about

Aaron Jones
Aaron Jones

It's very different from the usual fare, if that is good or not is up to you a lot of people hate it and think it is the worst gundam series ever.
I thought it was allright, but untill recently the only gundam I had watched was G-gundam in 7th grade and wing in kindergarten.

Jose Reed
Jose Reed

He wasn't really set up like that though.
And there was no real pay off to his story.

David Sullivan
David Sullivan

More like a loud minority hate it. The overall response has been positive.

Wyatt Ward
Wyatt Ward

He was okay but shoulda had a better plan than 'muh bael'. It's funny that after they fled back to Mars I thought he had some master plan up his sleeve - little did I know he was literally insane.

Colton Hughes
Colton Hughes

Ah, so it kinda diverges from what people expect from Gundam?

I guess that could be interesting. Thanks!

Ryder Richardson
Ryder Richardson

Season 1 of 00 was great. Season 2 was fucking garbage.

Joshua Sanders
Joshua Sanders

It has pacing issues, but I think a lot of it won't feel as bad since you don't have to wait a week to watch an episode.

Nathaniel Robinson
Nathaniel Robinson

He wasn't really set up like that though.
But his whole character was
Gee Mikazuki-san is so sugoi! I want to be sugoi just like him!
I don't know how he could've been even more set up as that kind of character.

Owen Martin
Owen Martin

Yeah, that's really the main advantage of marathonning series, you don't notice pacing issues that much.

Adam Barnes
Adam Barnes

season 1 was boring, season 2 was great because it was basically Zeta

Jackson Myers
Jackson Myers

I recently marathoned most of the show and I'd agree. There were points in that show where watching it weekly would have been hard.

Luis Robinson
Luis Robinson

Yeah, I genuinely think that IBO would appear to be a much better show when marathoned. Pacing issues are one of its worst problems when watched weekly.

Asher Lopez
Asher Lopez

Season 2 might not have been as good as Season 1 but it also has its own high marks and milestones like Solid Snake Setsuna, busting prisons with Gundam faces, fights actually getting even better when it involved name characters, Skittle Squadron, etc...

Hunter Gonzalez
Hunter Gonzalez

I guess Z ending was pretty much like that too

Thomas Lee
Thomas Lee

The thing that bugged me the most about OO S2 was that a lot of the moral gray area was gone. The A-Laws were clearly an oppressive thing, whereas before we had more grey economic blocks competing.

Camden Brooks
Camden Brooks

I'm so glad that Naze died. I hate him. But I wish Mikazuki would have killed him with his trusty gun.

Ayden Evans
Ayden Evans

Do you like IBO?

Logan Young
Logan Young

The romance plotlines were awful too. I can't believe they "killed" best girl Soma for that piece of shit of Marie.

Ryder Baker
Ryder Baker

Why he didn't do anything particular wrong.
I guess he was a giant manwhore, but he wasn't really wronged anyone.

Thomas Sanchez

Please answer these questions to sate my curiosity.

What's your favorite AU Gundam?
What's your favorite Tomino Gundam?
What's your favorite Gundam overall?

Hunter Anderson

Was there any point to Lafter at all? Might as well have killed her here.

John Sanchez

I just want the worst entry in the franchise to end already

Jace Sullivan
Jace Sullivan

Yes.
00
Zeta
Zeta (favorite one is actually 00 S1, but Zeta > 00 S1 & S2)

Leo Evans

Not him, but I like how Mikazuki is what Heero and Setsuna would have been if they refused to change their ways.

Jayden Cook
Jayden Cook

You're two years late, mate.

Jack Bell
Jack Bell

-No, so much so I don't think a worse gundam exists
-Madnug
-Victory
-SEED Destiny
Season 2 was better in every way.

Samuel Jones
Samuel Jones

Obvious bait is obvious.

Matthew Hughes
Matthew Hughes

yes
yes
G or build fighters but to be fair those two and wing are the only ones I have watched, I did watch wing but I was too young too really understand what was going on especially since it was spoken in english and I couldn't read subtitles yet.
0079
0079
I still haven't gone through the entire franchise I have only watched 1-13 gundam shows this includes movies and OVAs.

Thomas Walker
Thomas Walker

Not bait, Mecha Talk

Robert Martinez
Robert Martinez

Your favorite is Seed Destiny? Not hating on you, but I've never seen anyone say that. I rarely see anyone mention Victory as their favorite Tomino season as it's usually Zeta.

Would Turn-A count as a Tomino Gundam? I like that one.

Jason Adams
Jason Adams

Do you like IBO?
Fuck no.
I guess that could be interesting.
It really isn't.

Jack Rogers
Jack Rogers

Nope, fans are very split on it
Would Turn-A count as a Tomino Gundam?
Considering it has more refs to Tomino's non gundam works than AU stuff (seriously, X didn't get jack shit) it certainly counts.

Jordan Barnes
Jordan Barnes

not really, it had some good parts, but was not very good as a whole. I hated how they animated most of the gundam fights. too much QUALITY.

I like IBO a fair bit. But mind you, I don't hate OO S2, but I did feel it added a few changes that took it back towards a direction I didn't like as much as S1.

Blake Ramirez
Blake Ramirez

I think Ibo is fine, a mediocre entry for a AU. the only really bad thing about it is animation
It's G Gundam
Probably Z.

Cosmic Era has fans and people calling Destiny the best is nothing new, what you should be asking is why Madnug of all gundams.

Lucas Hernandez

Choco wanted to create a peaceful world without corruption and evil adults doing evil things
Gali stops him because Muh Power
Destiny Plan guy wanted to create a world where nobody suffers due to having no idea what they want to do with their lives
Jesus stops him because Muh ????
It's just not fair, why do the bad guys keep winning?

Carter Anderson
Carter Anderson

I was just kinda curious, what your stance on IBO was since you mentioned that you hated that 00 threw away the grey morality which I thought IBO did fairly well.
I mean every thread you see people fight about who is right or wrong in IBO, but I didn't see anyone really as clear cut the good guys.

Robert Torres
Robert Torres

Yes.
G.

Ayden Thompson
Ayden Thompson

Do you like IBO?
Who could like animation quality that low aside from ANN critics?

Owen Butler
Owen Butler

I see IBO as the story of Tekkadan. They're not necessarily heroes, but this is their story. A part of the series theme is the idea of them being manipulated and used by others, so them ultimately doing shady things works for me.

Landon Hernandez
Landon Hernandez

The director sayed about a "unexpected death". I expected Hush surviving at end and helping to care Mika son.

Levi King
Levi King

So what do you expect for Mika:
-Dead
-Super-cripple
-moderate cripple
-magically all okay somehow
-I AM THE BARBATOS

Samuel Young

No
The Duel from SEED
Does Ideon count?
Dougram because it does classic gundam a fuck of a lot better

Cameron Morales

Jonathan Harris

Andrew White
Andrew White

I see it that way too, almost every major party has a good or relatable cause, but they all are kind of shady in the way they do things, except for Gaelio who is completely justified in season 2, but the fact that his only motivation and drive is revenge for the entire 2 seasons he has been in kinda hurts his character as well.

Nolan Taylor
Nolan Taylor

It's not like there's anything physically wrong with his body, after all he can still move when plugged in.

He'll go full Barbatos and burn out during or after his subsequent rampage. There'll be a shot of the deactivated Barbatos surrounded in a field of Graze carnage.

Xavier Gray
Xavier Gray

I'm very mixed. I like how it's different from the usual fare especially in the latter half of S2, but IBO cares about being different more than being good. I know this analogy is overused, but it's the best way to describe IBO. It's the trainwreck you can't look away from especially the final episodes of S2. I'd say it's tied with Seed Destiny as my opinion for that series is very similar to what I think of IBO. Age Season 3 and G-Reco are worse as they're bad and boring.

Favorite AU series depends on my mood. I like G Gundam, Wing and X equally. I can tell you my least favorite which is Frozen Teardrop.

Favorite Tomino Gundam is Turn-A. I find it hard to care for early UC aside from some of the self-contained OVAs since Sunrise keeps shilling OYW and anything before F91. Seeing so much of this shit has made me lose excitement for it. Gundam the Origin is a waste of resources as is the Unicorn TV anime. A new late UC series could be great as there's a lot of content to work with, and we can get some awesome mobile suit designs, weapons, and tech in the process. I want to see how the UC transitions into the Correct Century, and I'd like to see events that unfold in Banagher's vision in the Gundam Unicorn light novel. So much story potential is squandered just to waste more time on unimportant events in the early UC.

My favorite Gundam overall? Can't say. I've followed this series for so long that it's impossible to decide.

Juan Torres

Does that make me undead and if so can I be a mummy?

Tyler Brown

It was just that entire scene where Mika is wrecking carta and her crew.

Ryder Stewart
Ryder Stewart

Neat. Season 1 had major pacing issues and the forced NTR and harem shit really doused what felt like a bit of a 'return to roots' For Gundam. Show would be a lot better without the snowflake rainow hair, Relena Peacecraft love triangle, and 'literally a fucking harem ship' bullshit. It's like they can't decide if they want to be a gundam show or some flavor of the month moeshit.

Ian Gonzalez
Ian Gonzalez

oh sorry, It wasn't a grimdark war drama. Remind me a bit how much serious was ZZ? Anime janai, wasn't it?

Blake Gutierrez
Blake Gutierrez

SD, G, X, Gunpla Builders, Build Fighters, and G-Reco weren't war stories but were still gundam. Action is higher priority than muh grimdark.

Jaxon Allen
Jaxon Allen

It would be cool if it turned out his brain is actually half-artificial or something because of damage from before. Would explain his character being so focused and approaching one-dimensional.

Though they have sort of a parallel theme going there with Mika which could make it a bit heavy-handed if not done well.

Jeremiah Gomez
Jeremiah Gomez

I hope you are not shitting on ZZ and ANIME JA NAI, especially ANIME JA NAI

Andrew Kelly

Charles Wright

I feel like IBO will be remembered as an average-tier Gundam at best. It won't be talked about with the level of disdain of something like Seed Destiny, but no one will be jumping at the bits to talk about it after it's finished.

Cameron Cox
Cameron Cox

It won't be talked about with the level of disdain of something like Seed Destiny
Give it time

Ryder Allen
Ryder Allen

Most of the zeta crew was unbearable, only the returning characters from 0079 were cool and I thought ptsd Amuro and mentor Char were great.
By the end of the show I was tired of almost everyones shit and then everyone proceeds to die in the most stupid way possible.
ZZ.>Z

William Barnes

I doubt it. It has been babby's first Gundam of this generation, like Wing, Seed and 00 were.

Ethan Jenkins

Random street rat beats up Wong
Random rookie destroys an extremely powerful Gundam only using an old heavily damaged Zaku armed with a Heat Hawk, something Char could never hope to do
Why are all pre-ZZ characters such weak pussies?

Connor Bennett
Connor Bennett

Everybody on Tekkadan's side is getting murdered
Mika will still be Muder Manlet even as he draws his final breath
Mika fucks Atra and they have a baby.

The Mobile Armor arc is a bit shonen-y, but after that everything that could go wrong for Tekkadan happens. Now the Manlet of Murder and Guts of Space are going to have a final stand against G-horn, but they won't be facing the main villain. They'll be fighting a secondary and a ton of grunts.

I may be making the last half of S2 sound great, but it's a very mixed bag. Very unlike the last half of S1. Feels like we're in Victory Gundam territory as anyone could die.

Well I thought it was a fun dynamic, since they were just a bunch of hoodlums and Bright is this serious guy so it is kinda natural he doesn't know how to handle them.

How? It was the only watchable part because it had something resembling action in it. Granted Hashmal had one of the weakest beams in the franchise, but still.

Noah Sullivan

There is also reccoa, Sarah and Beltorchika.
I also thought the shit with Rosamy was stupid, I know why Kamille was so keen on helping her, but they really shouldn't have let her on the ship if there is no supervision for her.

I'm not here for the action, more for the 'anyone can die' part. Good action is good, but seeing people get murdered senselessly and how others respond to that is what keeps the tension high for me.

If the real action sequences were less 'Mika shows up and wins' and more tense, I might like them more, but there was no chance the Mobile Armor was actually going to escape.

Also, that fucker continuously sabotaging every plan Tekkadan came up with was irritating to watch. Wanted him to just get offed already.

Studio 3 can occasionally animate action well when they feel like it but the in house style is terrible. Washed out colours, pointless gradients that make everything look like its made from plastic. Their shows have nice mech design but the rest of the world design feel generally feels unimaginative in comparison.

What does it matter how much Studio 3 has fallen post-00? The point was with Mizushima and Kuroda they were doing great when it came to 00's animation and visuals. The only TV series that has comparable visuals, production values, quality, animation, and flair how combat doesn't get boring in a mecha series is G-Reco and that came out almost a decade after 00 finished its run in 2009.

A quick rundown on Iok Kujan:
-Bernsteins bow to Iok
-In contact with orphans
-Possess caligraphy-like abilities
-Controls Gjallarhorn with an iron but fair fist
-Owns eye liner & blouses galactically
-Direct descendants of the ancient Kujan blood line
-Will accidentally destroy the first city on Chryse (the result will be named the Kujan crater)
-populated 99% of the graveyards on Mars
-First designer babies will in all likelihood be Kujan babies
-is said to have 215+ IQ, such intelligence in Gundam has only existed in form of Patrick Colasour and Flanders
-Ancient Indian scripture tells of man shaped calamity who will descend upon Mars and purge it of all space rats
-You likely have a Dainslaff spear inside you right now
-Iok Kujan is in regular communication with Agnika Kaieru, forwarding the word of Bael to Gjallarhorn.
-learned caligraphy in under a week
-Arrionrod fleet entrusts their meat reserves with Iok
-Iok is about 7 years old, from the space-time reference point of the base human currently accepted by our society
-In reality, he is a timeless beings existing in all points of time and space from the big bang to the end of the universe, which he will cause.

SEED was more entertaining to watch than IBO

Evan Flores
Evan Flores

I think it was literal to McGillis. I think he saw Mikazuki's link with Barbatos, remembered the mythology he read about Agnika Kaieru, and correlated that Barbatos must have a soul that Mikazuki bonded with to be so powerful a fighter. Then he figured Bael was the same way and that it would gift him with that same powerful bond with its own soul (Agnika), but what McGillis didn't reckon on is that Mikazuki's power as a fighter wasn't something gifted to him by anything in Barbatos: it was gifted to him by his bond with Orga. McGillis cast aside that chance when he betrayed Gaelio and Carta, rejecting them for what turned out to be a false Holy Grail caused by a misinterpretation of the signs and portents he believed he saw unfolding in front of him.

Benjamin Rodriguez
Benjamin Rodriguez

All these people who are still deluding themselves into thinking IBO is a fantasy novel. Wasn't Choco's delusions being BTFO enough to tell you what kind of story this is?
I bet they're the same people who want a self insert fantasy OVA about the Calamity War. Well, I can't fault you guys for this though. Grimdark muh realistic deep stuff with bad execution and downer end can only be so entertaining to watch.

Ethan Flores

Won how? His entire purpose was to remove Rustal and reform Gjallarhorn. That's not going to happen.

It's also a shit Gundam Frame when it has no redeeming qualities despite requiring a AV system to use. The swords are useless and it has nothing else of note besides a booster, which mind you, did absolutely nothing to stop Gaelio from catching and assfucking Mackie.

S1 was basically a shout out and celebration of pretty much everything from the franchise over the years (With a focus around the gunpla) and was a lot of fun. On top of that, they kept the actual plot so simple it was impossible to fuck it up and focused a lot on the characters. All around it was a really fun series.

S2 was the cheap kids tournament series we were all afraid S1 would be. Less references, more original designs and less fun customs, the power creep got ridiculous, it put way too much focus on a stupid love triangle, and it squandered a lot of potential it had while failing to develop most of the cast.

The Try Island Wars OVA connected to the second season was just offensively bad and focused on the worst parts of the second season.

The OVA coming for the first season supposedly has the original staff back on board (The second season had a director change) so hopefully it works out better.

Brandon Perry
Brandon Perry

You could argue it's a callback to the Tomino novels for MSG, when Amuro falls for Sayla, a de facto "princess" of Zeon even if she's an exile, but Relena shoved it down everyone's throats to the point where even unrelated series like Unicorn got it jammed in.

We will never be free of this trope again until we get an MC that actually makes good on their word and puts a bullet into a besotted peace princess's face.

It's why I both love and hate IBO. I love IBO because in a lot of respects, the 'tone' is a return to the roots of the original where characters are generally more down to earth and believable, and the combat is more raw and tense.

But then it goes and ruins it with rainbow hair, harems, NTR, and obligatory peace princess stuff like it's some generic moe-shit anime.

Why do they think people want this shit in a gundam show? People that enjoy moe shit don't care about action. The closest they care about it is otaku-bait merchandise-mills like Girls und Panzer, Upotte, and whatever that latest flavor of the month is with the edgy not-nazi-loli.

It would make sense, but if Gaelio stayed dead there wouldn't be a season 2 so they just kept him alive without any explanation.

Well you're not exactly wrong. Can't say I didn't go through a what the fuck BSOD the first time I saw naked bodies of souls in space in my gundams. Which, strangely enough, did happen in IBO. After all Agnika's soul being somehwere out there isn't that much of a stretch when you take this into consideration. Like they say, if you're gonna go retard, might as well go full retard.

The main reason they even threw it in was most likely that around that time an SDX figure of it was being released. The only actual kit of it is pretty old and goes for plain stupid amounts because it was never remade after its initial run (Something about the kit not being made by Bandai's gunpla department or something iirc).

And as if that wasn't enough, Orga's death was not only long, but almost theatrical. Like seriously, did he prepare a speech he would utter as he was dying, just in case?
Not to mention the show wanted me to cry hard, but yeah no, fuck you show, I don't care for cunts like Orga.

You know I think I did that way back when I was in 4th grade.

I have no idea. I just thought about it because of that post. It was probably just something I thought would sound cool because I watched too much anime at the time.

I'm honestly really happy Orga died

he caused all of this. After all the blood and sacrifice, Tekkadan finally got a reliable business growing. They had secure financial ties. Even after that fake war/mafia bullshit, they were still relatively well off and in good public standing.

Then Mr. Macky comes along and offers Orga mars. Instead of declining the offer, like a good businessman would, he agrees and proceeds to get almost all of his family and himself killed.

Watching Orga die is one of the most gratifying parts of this whole series.

Gabriel Fisher

They're good guys because they wield power in a reckless, evil manner
Macky is a bad guy because he wants to use power in order to protect the weak

For all its faults at least IBO realistically depicted what would happen to a merc group run by children put against people with far more experience and insight

No thanks.

Gjallerhorn are like Gadafis Libyan Goverment, corrupt, but at the end of the day they still keep order.

Mackys idea is essentially to turn the whole world into a lawless country for a period of time, it would take years for him to gain total control all the while without Gjallerhorn pirates, would likely take over a lot of Colonies.

the entire thing with Gundam has always been that the Status Quo is always better than turning everything on it's head. look at 0079-to essentially Unicorn. people dont want the world to change.

it seems ibo proved that focusing a whole series on the merc group, that in any other series would typically be working under the opposition and occasionally encountered, is really fucking boring

Right now it's still the 3-pronged wonder, unless we get a Mikazuki vs Gaelio fight which might prove the new hotness is superior to the old & busted Martian alley chopjob.

Mika and Gali Gali have no way to get to each other. Gaeilou's suit is trashed and mika would be blown to bits if he somehow got launched into space before being gunned down on Mars

You know, I was really with it until Shino missed his shot. There could be something about Rustal that we're going to learn in this last episode, but honestly, he seems... replaceable? If they'd killed him off, brought in another commander who was just as capable as him, that would have allowed them to do that, "I fought the law and the law won," ending we're getting without that massive boner killer. You can convey the intractability of the status quo without killing all the good guys and none of the bad guys.

Alexander Ramirez

I'm binge watching this shit, and I just got to Lafter's death. Most characters killed by gunfire has been shot three times, but it took six to take this bitch down. The guy who killed her has brown hair, so it must have been Heero Yuy.

Agreed completely, they are one merc group fighting against the reigning government. There is no reason for gjallahorn to not send wave after wave of officers telling them you're fucked no matter what
